HAA and AgFlyers are like...

... brothers and sisters in our eyes.

We both operate in the low level environment, which - as we all know - is becoming more and more crowded. Drones, wires, and MET towers are amongst our common enemies.

Therefore NEMSPA has recently joined forces in discussing issues and finding possible solutions to our shared problem areas with the National Agricultural Aviation Association (NAAA). Please visit their website to find out more about our common concerns.

In particular, we are lending NAAA our hand in raising awareness of a most recent topic that affects us both: responding to a pesticide-related aircraft accident.

In response to a recent occurrence, the NAAA has created the following 22-minute video to aid emergency first responders in the event they are called upon to respond to an ag aircraft accident and possible pesticide spill.

"Because time is critical for an injured pilot, emergency personnel must quickly protect themselves with the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) for the crop protection product onboard. Rapid identification of the product and information provided by the chemical label will ensure the proper PPE is used."

The NAAA offers a plethora of interesting reading material on this and other related subjects on this particular page of their website. Many documents can be downloaded as a PDF.

A video on wire strike avoidance is also available on this page.

We are looking forward to our continued collaboration with our low-flying brethren!

EDP protocol is a great risk assessment/mitigation tool. We need to push this ASAP to all companies.
